Happy Thanksgiving Murica! Drunken Social

I hear all the good stuff about Thanksgiving can be summed up thusly:


I'm half-Murican (the chatty half, natch), so Imma give thanks too! I'm thankful for my online peeps who never, ever think I've gone too far. I'm thankful for their friendship and support and letting me support them and I love our circle-cuddles!

I'm thankful for my fambly, OF COURSE, there isn't a day that goes by that I am not grateful for the opportunity I have to know such awesome (and loud) little people. I'm also thankful for my health,  which was a little sketchy sounding last year at this time.

Now! You go! Drink and say something inappropriate!  I said DRINK!!

Sociable! Tockame!

  1. Already made butternut squash soup. I may have gone a teeny bit overboard on the garlic. Oldest is baking an apple pie. The ducks are brining. And Katy Perry is a no talent hack.

    6. Maybe you should sit down and do a storyboard for what you did wrong and what you should have done? And then make that your avi. We'll wait

  7. Happy Thanksgiving. In your honour we are having pork chops and baked potatoes for tea.

    This year I am thankful for tidy bedrooms, a working boiler, that we only lost one roof tile in the recent storm, and that V1 still needs to contact his mummy on a daily basis despite living away from home.. I am unthankful that Mr V is still trying to teach himself the guitar.
